Prevention of Damage from Crimes

Q3 What measures are effective to protect children from crimes?

In all elementary school districts throughout Osaka Prefecture, parents or local volunteers of the crime prevention program work together to protect children from crimes and always watch for their safety.
Between three to five o'clock in the evening when children go home from school is the most dangerous hours for children since crimes targeting children occur most frequently in those hours.
All adults should pay attention to children's safety in the community so activities like "Team of Guardians for Child Safety" are very important.
